Thanks to “Pure Honey” for “getting” how I write and inviting me to compose an ode to Of Montreal in the 23rd issue of their ‘zine. Long-time album artist David Barnes and younger brother to the band’s frontman/mastermind Kevin Barnes took on the role of mouthpiece. And did he deliver.

He took my probing questions into his relationship with his older brother via email and either embraced them or turned them inside out, depending on how you might look at it. Though his answers had a fantastical element (he shared that, as children, his parents would reward he and Kevin with “the hose” and punish them by allowing them to dry out and “turn to dust”), they still revealed an honest love/hate relationship those with siblings might relate with. You can read the full story by jumping through the “Pure Honey” logo below…

The editor of “Pure Honey” also commissioned the younger Barnes to compose the cover art for that month’s issue and a poster for Of Montreal’s Miami show. See the images for yourself by jumping through the detail of the cover art below:
